Pinterest WIN: Healthy Mediterranean Creamy Fettuccine with Broiled Tomatoes- under 500 calories!

Ok, so you know how you love alfredo, but you know it is so not healthy for you, and makes you feel so stuffed after eating it? Well this recipe tasted delicious, filled my "alfredo" void, and didn't leave me feeling stuffed after dinner. Mediterranean Creamy Fettuccine with Broiled Tomatoes was amazing and healthy!! I made half of this recipe for the 2 of us. I also used 2 cans of diced tomatoes (drained) instead of cherry tomatoes because it was cheaper, I also liked how it made it a more tomato-y "sauce". I used fat free cream cheese too. All under 500 calories!
